Teen Arrested After Bringing Loaded Gun to School: Sources

A 15-year-old student at a Brooklyn high school has been arrested after police say he brought a loaded 22-caliber gun to school Tuesday, sources say. 

It’s not clear how he came into possession of the gun or how authorities at Midwood High School discovered he had it; police responded to the school after getting a call about it.

The teen was speaking with police at the 70th Precinct stationhouse for processing, the sources said. 

Midwood High School does not have metal detectors.

New York City Department of Education spokeswoman Miranda Barbot called the episode "deeply troubling."

"There is absolutely no place for weapons in our schools, and we are providing ongoing supports to the school community," Barbot said.
